"'Gawlo' is a rolling, resplendent tribute to griot life. 'Gawlo' is Fula for 'griot.' Spear-headed by none other than Baaba Maal. Superbly expressive interjections by a trio of talking drums are especially lucid on the instrumental version. On the flip, 'Lignou Mome' is an exhilarating straight-no-chaser of galloping drums, bad-minded bass and layered guitar; before 'Ndeye Gueye' wraps up proceedings with a third instrumental, propelled by terse, hypnotic figures on guitar and marimba synth. With the drum-kit unattended, octogenarian legend Doudou Ndiaye Rose features on lead sabar."
